01:18:25webguest66it doesn't do it everytime I skip, it appears randomly when skipping
01:19:11webguest66I'll try latest as well
01:19:56preglowi'm almost certain this is caused by the libmad performance patch i applied today
01:21:40amiconnOh fark
01:22:04amiconnThere's still something wrong with the gcc 3.4 -Os builds
01:22:15preglowwebguest66: is it just a tiny click?
01:22:41amiconnRoLo causes a checksum error followed by I09:CPUAdrErr
01:23:12webguest66yes it's just a tiny click
01:23:27preglowyou sure that wasn't there before? all tracks can click if you interrupt them at a bad time
01:24:26webguest66I'm certain it wasn't there before, I have been culling my albums furiously and have noticed the difference
01:24:54preglowok, i'll mention it to antonius
01:25:29thesonorkis there any possibility to have a plugin or a patch to have a "real" shuffle mode, and not just a shuffling of the playlist? so the playlist is still sorted alphabetically but the songs change randomly ?
01:26:43thesonorkor is it just easy to config an my eyes missed it :)
01:27:23scorchereal is overrated
01:27:40thesonorkthats why the marks are ther
01:27:47Bagderthesonork: no there's no such thing in Rockbox
01:27:53webguest66preglow, it's still there with the latest
01:27:56Bagderwe've worked hard to provide the current way

01:28:25Bagderas we believe this is the correct way of doing shuffle
01:28:32thesonorkits just my GF searches for some songs she wanna hear in the car ya know.... and its hard to find without sorting
01:28:37preglowwebguest66: the latest daily build, not the bleeding, that is?

01:29:12webguest66you want me to try the daily ?

01:29:35preglowthat's the last build i know of that hasn't got toni's patch in it
01:30:46thesonorkBagder, what about trying to use the Tracknumbers in playlist with some random number generator to play next track? wouldn't that be some solution? (i did not look at the sourcecode yet, so plz forgive me if i tell bullshit)

01:33:32Bagderso your GF can have the files sorted?

02:11:30midkaythat article will tell you, of course.
02:11:33midkaycheck 'history' perhaps.

02:13:17romanos_melodosis that feature supported by rockbox?

02:38:23dpassen1ipod ports are not going to be part of the 3.0 plan i thought
02:38:43midkaythey aren't. but playback fixes are, and iPods use the same system as the irivers.
02:38:58dpassen1Right, but iPod-centric optimizations are not

02:53:19preglowbut anywho, i need to sleep now
02:53:19afruff23I am going to use a conditional, but I don't know waht variable to set it for
02:53:24preglowplease leave feedback here, i'll read the logs
02:53:27afruff23i.e. %It
02:53:54midkaywhat don't you understand? that is indeed a usable tag.
02:54:08rotatorpreglow: i've fast fowarded to the end of 7 tracks now, and no ticks yet (crosses fingers)
02:54:23afruff23one second, I'll write the code and explain a little more
02:54:56romanos_melodosoh, regarding tags.. I've got a huge collection of greek songs but there's no support. Any suggestions?
02:55:15Mikachuyou lie
02:55:24Mikachuand i think i answered that yesterday
02:55:24romanos_melodoscan i download a file or something?
02:55:30afruff23%?It<%It %Ia|>
02:55:40midkayafruff23, sure that works..
02:55:48Mikachuromanos_melodos: set unifont as your font firstly
02:55:59afruff23i know, but would the player retrieve the next file's artist and title at the same time?
02:55:59romanos_melodoswe spoke this morning
02:56:04romanos_melodosi've done it
02:56:08midkayafruff23, yes.
02:56:12romanos_melodosbut doesn't works for id tags
02:56:20Mikachuthen your tags are not correctly set
02:56:24romanos_melodosonly for directory folders
02:56:39romanos_melodoshow's that possible?
02:56:49afruff23midaky, your last answer was given after understanding my question better, correct?
02:57:09phaedrus961romanos_melodos: go to the display menu and change the default codepage to greek
02:57:20Mikachuromanos_melodos: lots of programs have no idea how the id3 standard works
02:57:37afruff23in other words, the next file's artist and title info will be made available to the WPS at the exact same time
02:57:40pixelmasince unicode i also got problems with for example &auml; in wps
02:58:03midkayafruff23, ********yes*********.
02:58:08amiconnpixelma: Save the .wps file as utf-8
02:58:13afruff23thank you
02:58:20romanos_melodosyou've saved my life phaedrus
02:59:06phaedrus961no problem :)
03:00:36romanos_melodosbtw phaedrus, can i switch the whole menu to greek now?
03:01:10romanos_melodoslast time i've done it, i couldn't recognise the characters...
03:01:30romanos_melodosi had some stupid squares and dots ..
03:01:50afruff23isn't that greek?
03:02:02romanos_melodosvery funny
03:02:03pixelmaamiconn: ;)
03:02:21sharpeit's all greek to me. *rimshot*
03:02:48romanos_melodoswell.. if it wouldn't be greek then it wouldn't be anything
03:02:57romanos_melodosand you wouldn't had ipod, internet
03:03:03romanos_melodosor even language right now
03:03:12qwmtry :>

03:04:03afruff23will any of the the next file's info be made available to the WPS sooner than other info?
03:04:13sharpeactually, we'd probably have language...
03:04:34 Quit lostnihilist (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
03:04:35romanos_melodosactually , that's the last thing..
03:04:56sharpei sense a hint of sarcasm :)
03:05:18afruff23ANd no democracy
03:05:43romanos_melodosi don't want to be such a pain.. but some things are sacred...
03:06:26romanos_melodoswe're having fun or whatever, chatting and geeking around but.. it seems that we all lost our values
03:06:31afruff23is this: %?ig<Genre:%ig|%t0>;%?iy<Year:%iy|%t0>
03:06:46afruff23the same as this?
03:06:52afruff23in terms of output
03:07:01romanos_melodosand in this shity life, i'm proud to be greek and try to maintain some human values wherever i am.
03:07:33romanos_melodosin the end, is all that matters ;)
03:07:51scorchevalues are overrated
03:08:14sharpeafruff23; i don't think you need the extra | if there is not another statement.
03:08:16afruff23plz people, this is not a place for value discussion
03:08:17ashridahscorche: oh come on, you missed the best one of all. "values are overvalued" :)
03:08:29romanos_melodosand let bush talkin about democracy.. the guy doesn't even know how to write it..
03:08:35markunDo you guys prefer the old 'center scrolling' (scrolling at 2/3 of the screen) or the new one (scrolling at 1 line from the bottom) ?
03:08:52afruff23sharpe, so this:?
03:09:06sharpeyeah... that should have the same effect, as with the
03:09:18midkayhm, i don't think it will. but you can try.
03:09:33afruff23midkay, were you talking to me?
03:09:36romanos_melodosin what language is rockbox written?
03:09:41sharperomanos_melodos: c
03:09:43midkayyou and sharpe.
03:09:45midkayc + asm!
03:09:45scorchei win
03:09:48sharpewell, if it does, you saved two bytes. if not, oh well.
03:09:50midkay_i_ win.
03:09:53ashridahC and some assembly
03:10:00scorchemidkay: you never win
03:10:01rotatorpreglow: :\ finally got a tick with musepack, i can send you the track if you like
03:10:09midkayscorche, die.
03:10:19scorchemidkay: after you
03:10:29romanos_melodosanywhere i can find the rockbox source code?
03:10:30afruff23Actually, I would save probably 20 bytes and sicne my WPS is over 1500 bytes and is incomplete
03:10:31*scorche feels the love
03:10:33afruff23that would help
03:10:37romanos_melodosis that on the site?
03:10:40sharpethen you two will be immortal, as you're waiting for the other to die.
03:10:45scorcheromanos_melodos: yes
03:11:02romanos_melodosoh great, i'll have a look
03:11:17afruff23rockbox is closed source
03:11:22afruff23no code on the site
03:11:27afruff23 :)
03:11:30sharpethat'd totally be a bitch.
03:11:35ashridahromanos_melodos: everything rockbox related is inside the wiki on, pretty much
03:11:38scorcheromanos_melodos: it is called a joke
03:11:49 Part Paul_The_Nerd
03:11:55afruff23I think he hit enter right after me
03:12:07romanos_melodosit's called i'm talkin the piss on you
03:12:26sharpeshould i actually get a picaxe kit, so i have a reason to not be bored all of the time?
03:14:31romanos_melodoswho's idea was to put the metronome inside rockbox? I wanna kiss that guy!!! (i'm a Drummer) :P
03:15:03sharpei caused the metronome plugin to crash on my ipod. :D
03:16:56afruff23I like using the mtronome to annoy people
03:17:00afruff23high volume
03:17:05afruff23line-oout to sepakers
03:17:37romanos_melodostry using 250 bpm
03:17:46 Part nave7693
03:17:49romanos_melodoswill certainly blow their ears off
03:17:59afruff23When i used it on the nano It would only work everytime you pressed the button
03:18:04afruff23it couldn't do a beat
03:18:10afruff23maybe I'm dumb
03:18:19romanos_melodosthat's how it is
03:18:34afruff23then how do you get it to do 250 bpm?
03:18:41afruff23you mean pressing it manually everytime?!
03:18:51afruff23that'd break my thumb
03:19:07romanos_melodosi misunderstood
03:19:09sharpeyeah, you have to press it just over four times per second to achieve 250 bpm.
03:19:21romanos_melodosi've just pressed it once on the center
03:19:33romanos_melodosbut it gets jammed sometimes though
03:19:56qwmwho needs greek anyway.
03:20:00qwmisn't it dead yet?
03:20:02afruff23One time, I isntalled rockbox on my friend's nanohighest voklume told him to listen to this song
03:20:07afruff23opend metronome and bam
03:20:17qwmthere's a reason why they call it ANCIENT.
03:20:30afruff23isn't there mdoern greek
03:20:32romanos_melodosi think we've get over that subject years ago qwm
03:20:58romanos_melodosofcourse there is modern greek..
03:21:04qwmmodern greek is ancient greek spoken by weird isolated greeks on islands like crete.
03:21:33afruff23No, as in mdoern greek uses latin alphabet
03:21:36romanos_melodosqwm , r u from planet earth?
03:21:58romanos_melodosr u guys greek?
03:22:10afruff23no, but I have 2 greek friends
03:22:23qwmi like ANCIENT greek mythology.
03:22:32qwmlots of butt humping.
03:22:37romanos_melodosafru, latin came from greek
03:22:54romanos_melodosu mean u didn't knew?
03:23:16romanos_melodosi think u guys deserve a history lesson sometime..
03:23:23afruff23as in my WTF was not directed to you romanos
03:23:46qwmwhat afruff23
03:23:57afruff23lots fo butt huimping?
03:24:02romanos_melodoswhen i'm hearing stuff like modern greek took from latin
03:24:08qwmthe greeks invented it.
03:24:15romanos_melodosi'm sorry but that sound really hillarious
03:24:33afruff23isn't there a form of greek that doesn't use latin alphabet?
03:24:44qwmancient greek.
03:24:53romanos_melodoslatin took everything from ancient greece
03:25:02romanos_melodosway of thinking
03:25:10romanos_melodosand even the alphabet
03:25:12afruff23those damn hispanics!!!!!

03:25:55*dpassen1 longs for the pre-iPod days =\
03:25:59romanos_melodosthey didn't steal
03:26:04afruff23they stole the gyro and made it into the burrito
03:26:07romanos_melodosthey just borrowed..
03:26:09 Quit ashridah ("Leaving")
03:26:16qwmfuck no.
03:26:21qwmthey pirated the greek culture.
03:26:32afruff23the RIAA is comign after them
03:26:48qwmRIAA is unfortunately thousands of years too late.
03:27:26romanos_melodosdon't worry.. there's a lot of riaa in this world..
03:27:36romanos_melodosonly the initials changing
03:28:05***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
03:28:10romanos_melodosall for profit..
03:28:28romanos_melodoswhy they just don't leave us alone?
03:28:42afruff23because big corporations pay them moeny
03:29:16romanos_melodosthey're saying that they're closing a lot of european servers
03:29:38romanos_melodossome peer 2 peer servers like edonkey are already shut off
03:30:08romanos_melodosand they're threating torrent major sites like isohunt as well
03:30:36sharpewell, piratebay is in sweden. yay sweden!
03:30:44afruff23you can't blame them much for stopping people from pirating an OS
03:30:51romanos_melodosit seems that in about someyears from now
03:31:00romanos_melodoseverything will be controlled..
03:31:10 Part midgey34
03:31:16afruff23or perhaps the exact opposite if people get smarter
03:31:17romanos_melodosit's not pirating...
03:31:23romanos_melodosjust sharing
03:31:35romanos_melodosfor us (students) is different
03:31:38romanos_melodosyeah right
03:31:56afruff23If everybody pirated, then there would be no incentives
03:31:57romanos_melodoslike they don't get their money from major corporations..
03:32:04afruff23for people to make things
03:32:21afruff23other than advertising
03:32:34romanos_melodosu think ibm's target is how to sell a laptop?
03:32:55romanos_melodosor how to set up a man network?
03:32:56afruff23no, I meant advertising as a way for profit
03:33:22romanos_melodosscrew the bastards.. have we got to pay for anything ? damn..
03:33:29afruff23if they made things freeware, then they could only make moeny by allowing others toa dvertise on their site
03:34:15romanos_melodosi can really understand the work of a programmer
03:34:36romanos_melodosand i'm sure that he's got to be paid as well
03:34:41afruff23and in this shity life, i'm proud to be greek and try to maintain some human values wherever i am.
03:34:47afruff23startt by not pirating
03:35:30romanos_melodosbut saying that microsoft is going to lose money , is really absurd
03:35:50mc_365@<afruff23>Thats the best one all evening
03:36:07afruff23mc, is that sarcasm?
03:36:25mc_365<afruff23> and in this shity life, i'm proud to be greek and try to maintain some human values wherever i am.
03:36:32mc_365<afruff23> startt by not pirating
03:36:41afruff23lol thanks
03:36:59romanos_melodosu want me to talk about u?
03:37:12romanos_melodosoh man..
03:37:13afruff23I'm jsut saying your logic is falwed
03:37:23romanos_melodosyeah right
03:37:26afruff23if everybody pirated, then nobody would make new software
03:37:28romanos_melodossorry mr. perfect
03:37:39romanos_melodosi ain't killed anyone
03:37:48romanos_melodosi just downloaded some stuff...
03:37:54afruff23no, bu your stealing
03:38:08RoC_MMI think you think sharing software and making software are incompatible afruff23
03:38:19RoC_MMRockbox is made even though people copy it
03:38:20romanos_melodossteal is a kind of action
03:38:28RoC_MMAnd you can't steal software either.
03:38:29mc_365Just don't take the high ground if thats not where you really stand
03:38:30sharpewhy is it turning into a debate...
03:38:36afruff23yes, but these people do it in their free time
03:38:43afruff23they could jsut one day stop devloping
03:38:44romanos_melodosdid i get to anyone's home and get anything?
03:38:53romanos_melodosthis is shit
03:39:02romanos_melodosoh come on now
03:39:20romanos_melodoswhat r u trying to point out?
03:39:35romanos_melodosit's not a crime
03:39:43romanos_melodoscause i've already said
03:39:51romanos_melodosi'm using it for my self
03:39:57afruff23I'm saying there's NO REASON why Rockbox will continue to exist except for its users
03:40:17RoC_MMTroll man.
03:40:18afruff23ok, let's use an analogy
03:40:24afruff23I sneak into the movie theater
03:40:29afruff23I'm not stealing per se
03:40:40romanos_melodosthat's not an analogy
03:40:46afruff23but the makers of the film are making less than they could have
03:40:52romanos_melodosinternet, is not an analog space
03:41:00afruff23just like pirating software
03:41:01romanos_melodosit's got no bounds
03:41:09romanos_melodosand everything is anonymous
03:41:24afruff23that alst statement is false
03:41:28romanos_melodoswe share ..
03:41:41romanos_melodoswe don't sell to others..
03:41:44sharpethere is something in greece, against piracy...
03:41:49RoC_MMafruff23, I'm offended that your stealing my time by using bad analogies.
03:41:56romanos_melodosfor christ shake. is it so difficult to understand?
03:42:04goffayeah.. i could have had more time if you didn't come and steal it
03:42:16RoC_MMTime STEALER!
03:42:31romanos_melodosok.. sorry
03:42:33sharpeso that's how people become immortal. they steal time from others.
03:42:35romanos_melodosgo on
03:43:00afruff23if everybody pirated, then how would a programmer make moeny?
03:43:15RoC_MMYou mean if everyone made copies?
03:43:29afruff23if one person bought a copy
03:43:34RoC_MMuh huh
03:43:42afruff23and then everybody else got a free copy from this oen guy
03:43:50RoC_MMuh huh
03:43:53goffaafruff23: what about the ADDED sales resulting from increased exposure?
03:43:55romanos_melodosare u all guys from the states?
03:44:16markunafruff23: maybe a 2nd job :)
03:44:29romanos_melodosi reckon all the servers with pirated software are us based
03:44:38RoC_MMThe programmer would get paid by his employer, and the copying is completely in line iwth an open-source license.
03:44:39romanos_melodosu.s. based
03:45:05afruff23but where would the employer get his moeny from?
03:45:13mc_365<romoanos_melodos>you can rationalize all you want but the fact is if the author / owner has stipulated that his product is for sale and you obtain it with out purchase or leagal transfer of ownership
03:45:18mc_365you stole
03:45:24sharpefrom the company headquarters!
03:45:24goffaafruff23: how does red hat exist?
03:45:39goffabelieve me when i say they make money
03:45:45RoC_MMNo mc_365 stealing is completely taking something that someone already has.
03:45:55afruff23goffa, from whom?
03:46:00RoC_MMSoftware can be replicated with no harm or impact on anyone.
03:46:01romanos_melodosyou've all guys have everything messed up in your minds
03:46:06goffaafruff23: magic faries
03:46:12goffaoh and that printing press
03:46:12mc_365everything man made someone has or has had
03:46:36sharpeso what if we all are dyslexic?
03:46:37romanos_melodoscompanies are paying programmers for private programmes
03:46:39goffabut your theory is blown to hell
03:46:50RoC_MMYou'll never be charged with stealing when dealing with software, because that analogy is false propaganda.
03:46:51afruff23and romanos, you're the one saying that stealing is always physical....
03:47:15romanos_melodosyeah right
03:47:23RoC_MMI think you'll notice that when you make a copy of something, a copy doesn't cease to exist somewhere.
03:47:28RoC_MMWhich means you cannot steal software.
03:47:42goffawhy won't everyone believe afruff23? remember red hat doesn't exist
03:47:51goffapay no attention to the man behind the curtain
03:48:12sharpeRoC_MM: unless you accidentally "Move" it instead of "Copy" it. :)
03:48:17goffasuse is broke too
03:48:26mc_365so if you designed some new invention patent it the I took a picture of your blue print and produce the product your entitle to nothing cuase I didn't steal it
03:48:40RoC_MMmc_365, no we're talking about software, not an invention.
03:48:41goffaand microsoft is just barely scraping by because of all of those evil pirates
03:48:54JdGordonevil evil pirates..
03:48:55mc_365its an analogy
03:48:59RoC_MMIf you'd like to talk about inventions we can change the subject.
03:49:04afruff23piracy right now is not a problem
03:49:08mc_365I didn't take anything from you
03:49:13afruff23but if everyone were to pirate, then.....
03:49:14mc_365but I stole
03:49:15*RoC_MM has never seen a pirate.
03:49:29RoC_MMstealing is a physical action
03:49:31afruff23look in tthe mirror
03:49:35afruff23no its not
03:49:39sharpearr, they sail the seven internet backbones, arr.
03:49:40RoC_MMNot applicable to something not tangible
03:49:55mc_365everything is tangible
03:50:09romanos_melodosMajor Companies are paying programmers for private programms. Companies are getting money by selling software to major other companies like : institutions, universities etc... etc... I'm just a poor guy who's downloading some software, occasionaly and i'm not stealling it because that software was on another computer , so i'm borrowing it.
03:50:12sharpethought isn't. what produces it is, but thought itself isn't.
03:50:15goffaRoC_MM: ARRR matey!
03:50:28RoC_MMmc_365, that cannot be true, as it conflicts with the fact that some things are not tangible.
03:51:16mc_365romanos just proves my point he knows it wrong but he says he's poor
03:51:17romanos_melodoscompanies are not rely on individuals
03:51:20*afruff23 is thinking of a better analogy that won't steal your time
03:51:33romanos_melodosso programmers never get out of job
03:51:38RoC_MMI'm tired of you pirating my time.
03:51:38romanos_melodoscut the bullshit
03:51:45afruff23I go into a museum that has an entrance fee
03:51:53afruff23I take a pciture of it's entire exhibit
03:51:58afruff23and distribute it freely
03:52:04goffaYOU THEIF!!
03:52:05romanos_melodosfair enough
03:52:06goffaoh wait
03:52:08afruff23that museum just lost a lot of business
03:52:13goffaum.. no
03:52:18goffathe museum probably gained a lot
03:52:29goffapeople will want to attend if it is interesting
03:52:43afruff23I jsut said "entire exhibit"
03:52:44goffacase in point... i download a cd by a band i've never heard
03:52:53goffai like the cd
03:53:01romanos_melodosgo and buy it
03:53:02goffaguess who's going to the show when they come to town?
03:53:12romanos_melodosu are
03:53:17goffaoh wait.. i'm in jail
03:53:21mc_365but the fact is the owner wants to sell the anticipation of see great works of art and by distributing pictures you've stole that
03:53:25afruff23piracy is nto really applicable to music since CD sales don't really affect an artist's income
03:53:25sharpeArr, matey... batten down the hatches, thar be virii and trojan about...

03:54:13goffathen i paid more than what they would have charged me to liscence it
03:54:20romanos_melodosu guys don't understand the term anonymous
03:54:21mc_365I just don't take high ground or justify it.

03:55:29romanos_melodosmy moto is share not steal
03:55:31mc_365if it was all free then it would all be crap

03:56:00goffaand its free
03:56:01romanos_melodosdo i really have to sell it?
03:56:12romanos_melodosi may like to share it with people
03:56:12afruff23linux is free
03:56:18mc_365if you didn't pay, license, or obtain through legit source what you are doing is stealing
03:56:19goffaromanos_melodos: if you sould it it wouldn't be crap
03:56:20afruff23winamp is free
03:56:22romanos_melodosthat's my fuckin point
03:56:25afruff23fooabr2k is free
03:56:32goffathey are crap then
03:56:45romanos_melodosi don't think so..
03:56:53romanos_melodosso rockbox is crap then..
03:56:58romanos_melodosget out of here
03:57:00afruff23except most appsa ren't free
03:57:04mc_365I said if it was "All" free it would be crap
03:57:04goffathey have to be because they aren't free... according to "< mc_365> if you didn't pay, license, or obtain through legit source what
03:57:08goffa you are doing is stealing
03:57:27romanos_melodosfor me , linux are way much better than windows
03:57:33romanos_melodosso free is better
03:57:34goffaromanos_melodos: me too
03:57:44afruff23I highly suggest some fo you guys take some sort of ethics class
03:57:44goffaand not BECAUSE its free
03:57:47mc_365rockbox is great becuase the devs are constantly trying to show how good a DAP could be
03:58:05goffaafruff23: i suggest you make your horse a low-rider
03:58:19afruff23castrate myself?
03:58:32romanos_melodosi think there's a lot of tension in here for nothing..
03:58:33afruff23I don't get oyur proverb
03:58:41goffaactually that idea isn't bad either... then your genes wouldn't spread
03:58:53goffatranslation: get off your high horse
03:59:22mc_365I think everyone else is on the horse
03:59:54afruff23another analogy: say you own a sprouting software company and all your sfotware gets pirated, you have no moeny, your wife leaves you, you're homeless, you sell drugs, kids become drug dealers, cycle goes on
04:00:10mc_365Why are you entitled to have something the maker did not intend to give you freely
04:00:46goffasounds like your wife is a bitch.. and if you become a drug dealer because your software didn't sell, you have issues
04:01:03romanos_melodosas i said, software is mainly produced for companies. Have u heard a company that uses a pirated products??
04:01:15goffabest buy
04:01:34afruff23lol, more like "worst buy" with their prices
04:01:55scorchecompusa actually isnt bad when things are on sale
04:01:57mc_365and becuase they do good business you should be alowed to use said product for free
04:02:08afruff23compusa is my favorite physical retailer
04:02:15mc_365lota logic in that argument romanos
04:02:16afruff23that has chains
04:02:29goffaafruff23: i mentioned best buy because they got caught pirating this month
04:02:40afruff23what did they pirate?

04:02:59goffai think
04:03:02mc_365MS used pirated codecs in WMP8
04:03:04scorcheand compusa's service plans or warranties or whatever are actually ery decent
04:03:05afruff23is that for audio tests?

04:03:51afruff23after $70 mail-in rebate
04:03:51mc_3659 out of 10 companies probably don't have all the PC licenses up to date

04:44:33StringBladegood evening all
04:45:00StringBladeI really hope someone's around because I think I'm up shit creek and I need some serious help :<
04:45:55StringBladejust picked up an iPod nano 4Gb and went to install rockbox on it from linux
04:46:36StringBladefollowing the installation instructions the first thing it said was to format the thing as FAT32 (it was already HFS because it got set up on my wife's iBook)
04:46:52 Quit Daishi ("Client exiting...")
04:46:58afruff23you formatted ti wrong?
04:47:17StringBladewell, here's the thing
04:47:27StringBladeit says to format it, but gives no instructions as to how to do it from linux
04:47:48afruff23I think you have to use windows
04:47:52afruff23I may be wrong
04:47:56StringBladebut the first thing I did was dd if=/dev/sda and dd if=/dev/sda1
04:47:57Mikachuyou don't
04:48:00 Nick scott666|work is now known as scott666 (
04:48:05MikachuStringBlade: and of what?
04:48:05StringBladeto get the mbr and main partition as backup
04:48:24StringBladeof=mbr.bin and of=bootpartition.bin
04:48:35Mikachui guess you did count=1 on the first one then
04:48:59StringBladeheh, not the first time started grabbing the whole 4 GB
04:49:04StringBladeso I stopped and did count=1
04:49:10StringBladebut anyway
04:49:11Mikachuanyway what you want to do is mkdosfs -F 32 /dev/sda2
04:49:27StringBladesee, that eluded me
04:49:35Mikachube very sure not to type hda2 or something like that
04:49:37StringBladethe plot thickens
04:49:57StringBladeso after dl'ing all the files I might possibly need
04:49:58Mikachuyou can give more options if you want to set the volume label etc, but it seems rockbox eats that after a while anyway
04:50:10StringBladeI give up on linux and decide to try to format the thing using the iBook
04:50:28 Quit RoC_MM ("Leaving")
04:50:36StringBladeDiskUtiliy let me format MS_DOS no problem
04:50:54StringBladebut in the process (of one of the writes) it erased all the contents of the drive
04:51:08StringBladeso it can no longer boot into it's normal OS
04:51:21Mikachuwrite back your trusty mbr and boot partition backups
04:51:40StringBladeI have to run in disk mode (for a while I thought I was fskd when it wouldn't recognize the USB when I plugged it in)
04:51:53StringBladedid that, but it didn't fix anything
04:52:15StringBladeso I tried one last time and managed to install the rockbox.bin semi-correctly
04:52:40StringBladeI say semi-correctly because now it won't stop rebooting and flashing "Rockbox error: -1"
04:52:45Mikachutry writing back the mbr, replug it, check that the partition table is correct, replug, write back the boot partition and format sda2 as fat32
04:52:55StringBlade"loading original firmware"
04:53:06StringBladebut the original firmware fails (apparently) and reboots
04:53:15StringBladeand now it won't go into disk mode
04:53:30StringBladeand the USB drive won't recognize it (because it's perpetually rebooting)
04:53:56StringBladeif I press and hold MENU/SELECT it stops flashing
04:54:06StringBladebut never gets to the disk mode
04:54:17Mikachui thought it's menu+play for disk mode
04:54:18StringBlade'cause if I press PLAY/PAUSE, it goes back to flashing
04:54:26StringBladeat the apple
04:54:27Mikachuer, select+play
04:54:31StringBladeer, right
04:54:42StringBladebut if I let go of MENU/SELECT, then it reboots
04:55:00Mikachuhold menuselect until it reboots and press select+play, and it should go to disk mode
04:55:14StringBladeok, whew
04:55:16StringBladejust got it back
04:55:28StringBladenow I"ll have to scroll up to see what's the dealio
04:55:33StringBladethanks for your help
04:55:40StringBladeI bought this for a road trip tomorrow
04:55:49StringBladeand I figured it would be a breeze to set it up
04:56:00StringBladecompared to the Windows or Mac install instructions
04:56:02Mikachuwow, even i wouldn't have started installing something completely new the day before
04:56:19StringBladewell, it's a new device and I would have had nothing anyway
04:56:41StringBladeI only have linux and OS X, and an OGG collection
04:56:46StringBladewhat's a guy to do?
04:57:04Mikachui see
04:57:43StringBladeok, mount tells me that sda2 is vfat
04:57:54StringBladeso I should just have to dd the mbr back, right?
04:58:28Mikachuwon't hurt
04:58:32StringBladewell, I mean to get it back to not blinking
04:59:49StringBladewell, I'm back to no flashing and it's only complaining (briefly) that it doesn't understand the mbr
05:00:03StringBladeis it a problem that I grabbed the firmware from it after it had been formated in HFS
05:00:14StringBladeand now I'm trying to write to it in FAT32

05:01:50StringBladethe other problem with the Mac instructions is that the latest ipod updates (with the firmware) do not conform to the structure laid out in the instructions)

05:02:07Mikachuno idea guy, i think their firmware can handle both fat and hfs though
05:02:18scottderIs it silly I encode things in differnt codecs just because my Rocboxed Nano can play them :)
05:02:28StringBladethe iPod updater is mpkg not the other file type
05:03:29scottderMikachu: was that yes to me or StringBlade? :)
05:03:40Mikachuyou :)
05:03:57StringBladealso, the instructions said the boot partition would be around 40-80M - mine was 30k
05:03:57scottderHey I feel bad if the codec sits there unused :)

05:17:29StringBladedo you mind if I walk through the install with you?
05:17:36StringBladeI can understand if you don't want to
05:18:12Mikachuwell, you can ask if you hit any problems
05:18:58StringBladeI just want to verify my steps as I go along - that the file sizes sound right and if not, I"ll give you the commands I'm running
05:19:50StringBladeI believe I need to unmount the player before I format it, correct?
05:23:21StringBladeis there anywhere that describes the partitioning of the ipod?
05:23:24StringBladelooks like 4 partitions
05:23:32StringBladeor maybe just 2 or 3?
05:23:57mc_365anybody figure how to use foo_pod with 5G videos to rebuild itunesdb and keep file tree structure?
05:24:40StringBladek, I'm back to the problem I had before, the mkdosfs wiped the partion table, so fdisk -l /dev/sda shows no valid partitions

05:29:00StringBladethat seems backwards to me
05:29:05StringBladebut what do I know
05:29:19Mikachudoesn't matter, it's on a different partition
05:31:14StringBladebootpartition is only 30k again
05:32:34StringBladeI guess I'll just have to use it as a normal iPod for this trip :(
05:33:00Mikachuhave you actually repartitioned it correctly?
05:33:14Mikachuand also, you won't be able to extract any firmware from it after you format the whole device :P
05:33:35StringBladeI restored the device from the iPod updater
05:33:40Mikachuah right
05:33:41StringBladethen I formated just sda3
05:33:52Mikachu? there are only 2 partitions
05:33:53StringBladegrabbed the mbr and sda1 (30k)
05:34:09StringBladeI can't tell

05:47:13StringBladehow about /dev/sda2?

11:20:15B4gderwell, in this case I don't know what else could be intuitive
11:20:44ZagorI always thought it was a good idea to have a single button toggle between modes. not different buttons in different screens.
11:21:31B4gderI don't ;-)
11:22:07ZagorI think you focus too much much on what's written on/next to the buttons.
11:22:27B4gderI hear you don't have an X5 ;-)
11:23:06B4gderits not about what's on the keys to me
11:23:12amiconnZagor: That depends very much on the target button layout. On archos it makes sense, on iriver and ipod it does not
11:23:19Zagorthat's right. I have enough trouble understanding the buttons on the iriver.
11:23:55Zagoramiconn: i disagree. REC, for example, would be a perfect mode switch
11:24:23amiconnREC means recording. Now that would be unintuitive...
11:24:53B4gderREC is menu/quick screen on x5 ;-)
11:24:59*B4gder leaves for lunch
11:25:08amiconnYou can also see the red symbol as some kind of 'cancel'
11:25:08Zagoras I said: you focus too much on what's printed on the button. "A-B" doesn't mean "menu" either.
11:25:24Zagoryet nobody has a problem with that
11:25:52Zagor"ON" doesn't mean "toggle mode"
11:25:58ZagorI could go on a while.
11:26:11scorcheand yet it wouldnt solve anything...
11:26:30*petur fails to find a large trout to slap with
11:26:30Zagoryes it would, the mode switching would be much less confusing if it was always on the same button

11:29:26*wehn senses a discussion on the play/stop mapping issue i've seen a few times?
11:29:34Zagorwhy does PLAY not play the file I'm on? there simply is no logic to this, you have to learn it by heart. like old chemistry lessons... :-)
11:30:17amiconnZagor: See above; Play is not Select, and hence doesn't Select the file to play. 100% logical...
11:30:47Zagori don't want to select. I want to play. word games does not make create logic out thin air...

12:32:21changsitook, thanks
12:32:22preglowthat is very fast on rockbox :-)
12:33:04changsitoi'll try flac then
12:33:22dwihno_Anyone knows why wavpack is so slow on rockbox btw?
12:34:36 Quit Jungti1234 ()
12:37:21preglowit isn't _that_ slow?
12:37:29preglowdepends on how you compressed it
12:37:36preglownormal compression is fast, high is not
12:37:53preglowas to why, you need to ask david bryant that
12:40:07dwihno_ah, okay
12:40:40dwihno_Perhaps I should transcode everything to flac then.
12:43:02preglowas i said
12:43:06preglownormal compression is fast
12:43:11preglowand still compresses better than flac

12:44:26changsitobtw, which codec is better for power saving ?
12:44:45preglowhard to say. flac uses very little cpu, but needs the drive to be spun up all the time
12:44:48preglowi'd probably say mp3
12:44:59preglowit also depends on the player
12:45:06preglowthen mp3
12:45:12changsitook thanks
12:45:20changsitoLAME is my friend so
12:45:33preglowyep, lame and good vbr settings and that'll be the best for power saving
12:45:53dwihno_preglow: it's not just that... software companies are bad at supporting wavpack... :/
12:47:01preglowi don't think they're particularil adept at supporting flac either
12:47:07preglowsomewhat more than wavpack, though
12:51:25markunShall I put the old center-scrolling back or leave it like it is?
12:51:49preglowcenter scrolling? we never had that?
12:52:30markunwe used to call it that. The screen start scrolling before the cursor hits then last row
12:52:43markunIt used to start scrolling at 1/3 from the bottom
12:52:53markunNow at 1 line from the bottom

13:15:32B4gderI miss some meta-data like author
13:16:06B4gderand I believe you will need some info weather the package works on a stock rockbox or if any patches are required

17:10:00KyomiAccording to misticriver thread fits in almost all iriver Hxxx :)
17:10:01scfdualboot is not supported for X5 yet?
17:10:05KyomiOnly 20 USD :D
17:10:45TeaSeaKyomi: Right.
17:10:57TeaSeaAnd scf: Right :)
17:10:58KyomiSo long dying battery ^^
17:11:27TeaSeaKyomi: I'd still try and see if someone with the exact same Hxxx model as you has tried it out first.
17:11:30TeaSeaJust to make sure :)
17:12:16linuxstbromanos_melodos: You'll just need to read the source and try to understand it - I'm not familiar with the details. But I think the LCD display code is in lcd.c. The "main.c" file is probably called rockboy.c
17:12:21KyomiTheres like 19 pages in that thread
17:12:44TeaSeaKyomi: SIYF
17:12:49TeaSeaSearch Is Your Friend
17:12:59scfguys, what is the best practice for usage/charging schedule for X5?
17:13:09TeaSeascf: Same as with any battery of that type.
17:13:12scfsorry if question is a bit offtopic
17:13:25romanos_melodosi'm lookin at it right now linux
17:13:28scfTeaSea: and? :)
17:14:05TeaSeathe X5's battery isn't too comfortable sitting at 100%, doesn't mind 60+%, quite likes 40-60%, Isn't too fussed about 20-40%
17:14:10TeaSeaBut it hates being at 0%
17:14:21TeaSeaSo try not to let your battery run completely dry, or it'll screw it up quicker.
17:14:35TeaSea(Which I found out after my battery was already borked :( )
17:14:43romanos_melodosso after changing the values to the ones i want to get and compiling both lcd and rockboy , in what dir should i place the folder?
17:14:53scfTeaSea: so if I listen to mp3s few hours per day, it is better to charge it a bit every day?

17:19:44TeaSeaKyomi: Careful. If you value DRM support (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA) flashing international on a US H3xx will destroy DRM.

20:19:36Galoisoops I am wrong
20:19:39Galois"sampling frequencies of 32, 44.1 and 48 kHz"
20:20:12muesli__though it shouldnt be recognizable better quality huh?
20:20:14ep0ch_why lame? Vorbis is the way to go ;)
20:20:26muesli__dunno..dont like ogg
20:20:34Galoishow can you not like ogg
20:20:58muesli__runtime should be better on mp3
20:21:29Galoisit should, but rockbox has a pretty inefficient mp3 routine right now
20:21:56ep0ch_muesli__: what are you doing? what source has 48 mhz come from?
20:21:58muesli__right now?
20:22:08dprodoes audio recording work on ipod video ?
20:22:10muesli__have coldplays live dvd here
20:22:29muesli__it offers me to rip in 48khz
20:22:38ep0ch_muesli__: what mp3 player do you have?
20:22:41Galoisall dvds are 48k
20:22:47muesli__irivers h320
20:23:03ep0ch_best to convert it to 44.1 before hand really
20:23:11Galoisgod, conversion is lame
20:23:23Galoisrockbox plays 48k audio just fine
20:23:28ep0ch_otherwise you will use rockboxs resampler to do 48 -> 44.1
20:23:43Galoisresample? what are you talking about
20:23:57Galoisthis ain't a CD player you know. It's not limited to playing 44.1
20:24:00ep0ch_iriver outputs at 44.1
20:24:09Galoisfine, but do you want your universe to revolve around iriver?
20:24:42Galoisan mp3 player does not last forever. eventually that iriver will break and you will (hopefully) get a decent player that isn't limited to 44.1
20:24:51ep0ch_anyway it doesnt matter, you wont hear a difference betweeen 48 and 44.1 :)
20:24:54Galoisdo you at that point reencode your entire music collection?
20:25:07muesli__btw i have ac3 2ch/ac3 6ch / dts 6ch. just did ac6h but it sounds kind of dull
20:25:07*Galois is strongly against the concept of conversion
20:25:16Paul_The_NerdGalois: Rockbox has a pretty crappy resampler though, so if you're listening to it on Rockbox on Iriver you *probably* want to resample properly, and rerip later if you want that slight improvement
20:25:18goffa96k wma is cd quality too *rolls eyes*
20:25:25dprohamm strange ... shouldn't pressing play while booting load linux.bin by default ?
20:25:40Paul_The_Nerddpro: Holding play early enough will, yes.
20:26:27muesli__btw i have ac3 2ch/ac3 6ch / dts 6ch. just did ac6h but it sounds kind of dull, which one should rock?
20:26:29ep0ch_Galois: if your so strongly against it you should advocate leaving it its native format :D
20:26:51Galoisif I had infinite capacity then that's what I'd do
20:27:37Galoisalso, eventually rockbox's resampling will be non-crappy (I hope)
20:28:26dproah ok I was too late ;) ... tataa triple booting video, just need pcfdisk somewhere to make an ext2 partition for the actual / fs ;)
20:28:57Paul_The_Nerddpro: I figured that was it. Even if the kernel bin file isn't found, it'll say "Loading Linux" and then fail. ;-)
20:29:52dpropaul:yeah it loads linux just fine but then (obviously) fails with a kernel panic ...
20:29:53muesli__i have some mp3s with disorders while they are in irivers fw ok. could that be caused due resampling stuff?
20:31:02dprook guys thanks a lot ... ttyl gotta go to a nerd-club-mate party
20:31:25dpropaul: BTW recording on ipod video is that possible ? (or what needs to be done/tested ?)
20:31:26ep0ch_muesli__: maybe, but most likely due to dodgy mp3 frames
20:31:27muesli__sounds like too much bass even when its at 0
20:32:40amiconnPaul_The_Nerd: Nobody said the resampler will always be crappy
20:33:07Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: That's true. I was just stating its current condition. I imagine that resampling once in advance will also be more battery-efficient though
20:33:47Paul_The_Nerddpro: I don't know if it's possible to record by way of the headphone jack, but I think there's a line-in pin through the dock connector at least that'll probably be usable one day. Nobody's really done much in that direction at all, I believe, other than what code exists in iPodlinux that we can make use of.
20:33:57Paul_The_Nerddpro: But I think that's mostly 4G and earlier related
20:35:01ep0ch_hmmm what shall I have for tea?

21:10:33goffaso, you can find some artist you hate, beat the hell out of them, and get 6 years
21:10:37romanos_melodoshi! Does anyone knows how can i prevent rockbox from shutting my ipod down when i'm leaving it idle?
21:10:38goffabut if you download the cd, you get 10
21:10:50Mikachuromanos_melodos: change the shutdown on idle setting
21:10:53ravonBeating Craig David up and getting him in a coma for a week - 6 years. Copy his CD - 10 years.
21:11:01goffathere ya go
21:12:19Paul_The_NerdWhat if you just steal a physical copy of the CD from a store? What's the penalty for that?
21:12:21goffai've decided we don't have government
21:12:24goffawe have an auction
21:12:38goffaPaul_The_Nerd: good idea :)
21:12:52goffai'm sure its less than 10 years in PMITA prison
21:13:30Galoispetty theft is a misdemeanor. Your penalty is probably a fine and community service, although you can theoretically go to jail.

21:13:55romanos_melodoshas anyone any idea where can i find the guy who built rockboy? I need some help on gettin' that in ipod nano..
21:14:32Paul_The_Nerdromanos_melodos: I imagine if the creator wanted to deal with it, he/she would've already fixed it.
21:14:55romanos_melodoswell.. he didn't
21:15:22amiconngnuboy was initially ported to rockbox (iriver) by HCl
21:15:35amiconnSince then, a number of other people have worked on it
21:15:51webguest14how can i generate ID3 cache?
21:15:59romanos_melodoswell that's irrelevant.
21:16:02*amiconn optimised gfx for H1x0 a bit and ported it to archos recorder
21:16:20Paul_The_Nerdwebguest14: Read the TagCache page on the wiki.
21:16:32romanos_melodosanyone who can help me port rockboy to nano?
21:16:58romanos_melodosi think we've got to fix the dimensions and compile it..
21:17:39scott666is rockboy working on the ipod video?
21:17:54scott666i havnt played with it yet
21:18:02scott666do i have to find roms to use it?
21:18:24 Join ProgramZeta [0] (
21:18:41Paul_The_NerdIt's not just fixing the dimensions. You have to figure out how you want to handle scaling (dropping X lines from one side or the other, splitting them among both, or taking every Xth line)
21:18:46romanos_melodosgo to game boy roms and download
21:18:51Paul_The_NerdPlease, don't paste links to illegal roms in the channel
21:19:17amiconnScaling should be selectable, like on H1x0
21:19:43romanos_melodossorry nerd
21:20:23amiconnGameboy is 160x144, H1x0 is 160x128. You can select to drop 16 lines from the top, 16 lines from the bottom, 8 lines each from top & bottom, or every 9th line
21:20:26romanos_melodoswell, it's just playin' around with the values on the x , y axis .. isn't?
21:20:45romanos_melodoscan u give me a hand amiconn?
21:20:47Paul_The_NerdSince the 'nano is 176x132, you get 4 whole more lines.
21:21:10amiconnIt has to be decided whether the X axis should be scaled up
21:21:15amiconnOn H300 we do this
21:21:44scott666how does the scaling work on the ipod video?
21:21:49crashdit doesnt
21:22:00crashdit's either native size or nothing, it cant do fullscreen on the 5g yet
21:22:08crashdnobody's fixerered it
21:22:22romanos_melodosso it's better for the other versions?
21:22:27Paul_The_NerdThe controls also don't exactly work very well at all
21:22:50Paul_The_Nerdromanos_melodos: The fullscreen zoom is hard-coded for a 220x176 screen I believe, at the moment
21:23:28romanos_melodosanyone who can help me out on doing this?
21:23:44amiconnHmm, seems the scaling is quite different from what it used to be when I fiddled with it...
21:24:02Paul_The_Nerdamiconn: Karl went in and did a rework getting it to do colour on the H300, I believe.
21:24:06romanos_melodosi've got the rockboy folder
21:24:22Paul_The_Nerdromanos_melodos: Well, you've not even asked any specific questions. How much have you looked at the code yet?
21:24:58romanos_melodoswhich is the file that i've got to chroot?
21:25:14webguest14how can i make crossfade working?

21:25:59romanos_melodoshow can i convert .cpp to .rock?

21:26:20Paul_The_Nerdwebguest14: And you've enabled it, and set the delays appropriately?
21:26:30Paul_The_Nerdromanos_melodos: You're not going to have much luck if you don't know *any* C...
21:26:33scott666are there eq presets somewhere on the site? i thought it was a bit odd that it doesnt come with any
21:26:46romanos_melodosi know programming
21:26:50romanos_melodosa little bit
21:27:05webguest14what's difference between crossfeed and crossfade?
21:27:13Paul_The_Nerdscott666: Well, nobody's submitted any. As it is, the EQ should really ideally be a more personal thing anyway, but yeah, nobody's submitted any.
21:27:18ravonWill there be any more extensive developer docs for 3.0?
21:27:21Paul_The_Nerdwebguest14: They'r explained in the manual.
21:27:23romanos_melodosi just want to know how the heck u make the .rock file extension
21:27:44Paul_The_Nerdromanos_melodos: Which tells me you've not compiled Rockbox, because when you run through the compilation process, it compiles the plugins to .rocks on its own.
21:27:45amiconnThis code looks quite hackish... In order to support more different LCDs, it seems necessary to restructure it quite a bit
21:28:27preglowravon: what more developer docs do you need?
21:28:29romanos_melodoshmm that sounds tricky

21:28:59ravonpreglow: Complete doxygened interface would be enat.
21:29:18Paul_The_Nerdromanos_melodos: It's C not C++. And it makes a .exe if you're compiling it for windows. In reality it depends on which compiler you use, what binary format you get.
21:29:55ravonpreglow: The current docs are mainly the source and some sporadic architecture explanations.
21:30:01Paul_The_Nerdwebguest14: I'm not certain, but I think that would result in no audible delay and a 5 second gap between songs...
21:30:07romanos_melodosso how can i get a .rock format
21:30:25Paul_The_Nerdromanos_melodos: As I said, when you compile Rockbox, it links and compiles the plugins as .rocks for you.
21:30:47romanos_melodosoh ok
21:30:53webguest14Paul_The_Nerd: what do you suggest to use?
21:31:03scott666romanos_melodos: have you set up your rockbox dev environment (cygwin, etc) yet?
21:31:08Paul_The_Nerdwebguest14: Try setting both durations to 5 seconds, and both delays to 0.
21:31:25romanos_melodosin which files should i look for the display properties?
21:31:54romanos_melodosit's got an lcd file...
21:31:57webguest14Paul_The_Nerd: and which mode?

22:30:37RedBrevaEvening all... Have just spent a little time reworking the HTML on It should now be standards compliant, and passes almost all the accessability tests... The big question is, do the pages still display correctly on a wide variety of browsers, screen sizes etc.
22:31:05RedBrevaNone of the download actually work yet... just RFQ on the look and feel etc.
22:31:35Inc... I have an idea.
22:31:46Inchow about a wholeeeee new web site design
22:31:48scott666the links dont go anywhere?
22:31:50Paul_The_NerdRedBreva: I would suggest you divide them up by screen instead of by target. For example "220x176x16: H3x0 and iPod Photo"
22:31:55Incmore "up to date"
22:31:56scott666ah, ok then
22:32:12ep0ch_RedBreva: looks fine in konqueror
22:32:15DarkJesusLooks great on firefox
22:32:26Paul_The_NerdRedBreva: There's no reason there should be ones that don't work on two identical screens on different targets.
22:32:28DarkJesusWhy are there only 8 themes though?
22:32:34scott666ditto, firefox
22:32:42petur2ok on IE and firefox (windoze)
22:32:42Inclooks fine but I vote a whole new design hehe.
22:32:56scott666Paul_The_Nerd: if you click the links it appears that that is how its set up
22:32:57petur2could use a bit more spacing above 'WPS for 'Patched' Firmware'
22:32:58*amiconn fires up his browser collection
22:33:18RedBrevaDInc :P
22:33:32Paul_The_Nerdscott666: I noticed that, but it seems more logical to me to not have several links to one page. Also, it'll make clear to people who don't know that the restrictions are by screen rather than target.
22:33:59ep0ch_RedBreva: seems ok in w3m (no pics though...) ;)
22:34:26Paul_The_NerdRedBreva: Looks fine in Firefox , and Opera 8.5 on XP with a 1280*800 resolution

22:35:04ep0ch_anyone with netscape 4? :)
22:35:13scott666i think the average user is going to have an easier time just clicking on /their/ player, but it could probably designed to make it obvious as to which players all have the same resolution
22:35:35RedBrevaNetscape 4... I have to use that still at work!
22:35:38bluebrotherRedBreva: have you tried asking the w3 validator about it?
22:35:46Paul_The_NerdWhat you could do is have the link say "220x176x16bit" then underneath it the pictures of all players that use that screen.
22:36:24amiconnRedBreva: Checked Firefox 1.5, IE6, Opera 7, Opera 6, Netscape 4.7, Espial Escape, and Hotjava
22:36:26scott666it looks fine in IE too, assuming its supposed to be all left-alligned
22:36:35bluebrotherRedBreva: it validates much better when switching to xhtml 1.0
22:36:56amiconnAll looking okay within the capabilities of the browser, except there's a slight glitch in Opera 6 and Netscape 4.7
22:37:19pixelmain Firefox 1.5 i tried to download a .zip file, download seemed to be o.k. but the actual zip was empty
22:37:32pixelmabut could also be my fault
22:37:35RedBrevabluebrother: I use an offline validator, but I have still had occasions where extremely coliant code fails to display on some browsers, theyseem to prefer crap code <cough>IE</cough>
22:37:52RedBrevashoot my speelins is carp tonight!
22:37:54amiconnRedBreva: There's a light-blue border around the whole page in Opera 6 and Netscape 4.7, Opera 7 also has that problem
22:38:15amiconnIt seems these browsers do not default to a zero border if no border is specified
22:38:35RedBrevaamiconn: OK, will note this on the TODO list - thanks
22:38:36bluebrotherthe online validator finds 5 errors, 1 when overriding the doctype to be xhtml 1.0
22:39:34amiconnOf course really old browsers will have a hard time since it's all style sheets...

23:15:58Paul_The_NerdYou could always try it...
23:16:00Bagderjudging by the talk in the patch entry it sounds like it may
23:16:56DarkJesusThere isn't one in a daily build then?
23:17:12DarkJesusI've never patched the rockbox firmware before - I'll give it a try
23:17:13Bagderfeature freeze
23:17:26Paul_The_NerdYeah, if there's still a patch tracker entry, odds are very good it's not in the daily.
23:17:27DarkJesusIs there any instructions on how to do it on linux?
23:17:43BagderDarkJesus: plenty!

23:19:26DarkJesusWhat's with the -p0, -p1, etc?
23:19:49BagderDarkJesus: that's mentioned too
23:22:11DarkJesusI don't understand it though
23:22:24Bagderit cuts off pieces of the file path from the left
23:22:37Bagdernumber of slashes to ignore
23:22:59Bagder-p2 == ignore everything up to the second slash (from the left)

23:25:06DarkJesusWhat does this mean though?
23:25:38bluebrotherpatch files contain the filenames of the files that are affected.
23:26:14bluebrotherdepending on the directory level your in when generating / applying the patch the paths need to be adjusted.
23:26:47bluebrotherso you can strip a part of the path. This is controlled with -p
23:28:09DarkJesusSo if you are in /home/user/rockbox/ you'll need to use p3?
23:28:14DarkJesusor p2
23:28:32Bagderit depends only on the actual patch you apply
23:28:37***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
23:28:50Bagderand the source tree you're applying it to
23:29:26Bagdercan you instead tell us what your problem is?
23:30:07Paul_The_NerdIn /home/user/rockbox/, for *most* patches -p0 is actually what you want.
23:30:58bluebrothersay your patch file wants to patch rockbox/apps/metadata.c. The patch was generated from within the rockbox dir, so it contains a reference to apps/metadata.c. If your in rockbox/apps this means you need to strip the first path element (the apps/). From rockbox/ you don't need to strip anything at all, i.e. -p0
23:31:08bluebrotherjust read man patch.
23:31:26bluebrotherit's a really descriptive man page including examples.
23:32:14amiconnHmm, gcc does strange things...
23:32:41amiconnWhy does -O plus all options said to be enabled with -Os not produce the same output as just using -Os ?
23:33:14Mikachumaybe it makes other choices that aren't available as separate options
23:33:14dwihnoYou just answered that question :) −−> <amiconn> Hmm, gcc does strange things...
23:33:42Paul_The_NerdI think the important piece of information here is that it's "gcc" which as you've mentioned doesn't seem to be the most reliably consistent piece of software.
23:33:59amiconnThe binary size difference is >)KB
23:35:49amiconn...and the -Os binary hangs, while the ( -O + all extra options) (both minus -funit-at-a-time) does not
23:36:00amiconnShaky stuff :(
23:36:23amiconnToo bad, it seems we have to stick with gcc 3.3.x for archos if we want to use -Os :-(
23:37:40dwihnoreally strange
23:38:44amiconnI wonder whether we're doing something wrong. -O2 works fine for plugins today (except the switch() corner case which I have a patch for)
23:39:01amiconn..whether we're doing something wrong in the core, I mean

23:42:38PaulJami have a question concerning the vmware image: is it normal that it takes ages to boot? after 15 minutes is is at the stage "uncompressing linux..."
23:43:30peturonce booted, just pause the player, don't shutdown ;)
23:44:12PaulJamso it is normal?
23:44:50Mikachuprobably not
23:44:54peturdepends on the computer I guess, can't remember that it took that long
23:45:32PaulJamthis is on a pc with 3 GHz and 1024 MB ram
23:46:29asteelethat's certainly not normal
23:46:52asteelethe first time i booted it on my laptop (quite a bit slower) took ~2 minutes
23:46:58asteelenow it takes ~20 seconds to resume it
